Police at the University at Buffalo are still searching for the suspects who sprayed a racial slur in a bathroom on the North Campus.

A university spokesperson tells 7 Eyewitness News the graffiti was sprayed November 22nd in a Capen Hall bathroom.  Crews removed the graffiti and police began their investigation.  We're told that if the suspect is a student, he or she will be referred to the student judiciary.  If the suspect is an employee the Human Resources Department will take action.

The spokesperson went on to say, "Racially discriminatory conduct has no place at the University at Buffalo and will not be tolerated.  When acts motivated by hatred or discrimination occur, the university will respond promptly to protect the safety and well-being of the entire university community. Diversity, inclusion and mutual respect are strongly held values of our university."
